Microsoft raises academic licence prices in Switzerland

Thursday 13 July 2017 | 11:25 CET | News
The Swiss agency for IT in education, Educa.ch, has extended its framework agreement with Microsoft for software licences for the academic sector until 2020, reported ITreseller.ch. For certain products, prices have increased or discounts have been reduced or cancelled. Educa.ch estimates that the costs of software licences for academic institutions in Switzerland and Liechtenstein will grow by 10 percent. The main reason is that Microsoft has cancelled discounts for small contract amounts.
